In the Bleak Midwinter…

Sometimes, when it is a sad and cold winter day, it is good to spend time with one’s pets. DSC07173-b

Rainy- Day Ridiculousness

Expectation when going outside in the rain to look for your cats and feed the rabbits: heroically rescuing the three cold, wet, and scared felines and coming back inside dry because, you know, you are the one wearing a rain-proof jacket.

Reality: Come inside looking like a drowned rat you’re so wet, meanwhile the cats, one of whom was out in the middle of a field during the worst of the rain, are perfectly content with life and as dry as if they just hoped out of a dryer.

The inherent dangers and complete stupidity of standing in lightning-filled rain looking for a cat were apparent, it was a thought that did pass through the mind. However, it could not compete with an image of a soaked and shivering grey and white tabby crouching, terrified somewhere in a field, and was consequently ignored. Unfortunately the mind  was not the most astute in this moment,leaving the savior soaked, while the cat remained safe and dry in its hiding place.

Feeling Cornered

Do what makes you happy. Ignore the critics, even when you feel all alone.

A Quilt

 

She soothes the troubled heart with her warm embrace. She cares for you when you are sick and need to rest. She protects you when the world is cold and unwelcoming. She is the faithful friend who wipes away your tears. She tells the stories of those who have come before. The quilt made with care, reminds you of times and people that although gone, will live forever in your memory.
